Lovers Point Park

Is a quaint, ocean side park. It was fun to watch kids diving off the rocks while we ate. Wonderful ocean views, fun people watching in the park

There were many people swimming here. The water looked very inviting! Great place for a short visit or a longer stay for swimming and a picnic. Bathrooms available too!

Beautiful & romantic place shared with my fiancé. After going to the farmer's market in Pacific Grove, we stopped here and had lunch, held each other tightly, and felt so grateful to be in such a special place together.

This is a beautiful park. The ocean view is breathtaking! Restaurants close by. The chipmunks will climb on you, so be careful.

I live near Lovers Point but never take it for granted. It would be hard to find a spot more beautiful. If you have small children, this is the best place on the Monterey Peninsula for them to safely play in the water. It is calm and if you want sun, this is your best option. There is also a... More

A lovely green and shady area with access to rocks close to the water. When the surf is running, board riders are close by! Plenty of seating and grassed areas; BBQs as well.

Gorgeous park and view of the Pacific Ocean! Great little hot dog type stand too. I had my coffee here every morning as I stayed at a hotel across the street.

We had just arrived in Pacific Grove and took a short walk along the front. We sat on a bench looking out to sea and watched the Harbour Seals on the rocks along with cormorants and gulls.
